Team London Cyclist racks up 4778 miles on Cycle Challenge and burns off 461 blueberry muffins!

cycle-challenge-badgesAs we are 9 days into the Cycle Challenge I thought it would be a good time to report on progress.

  • Team London Cyclist has clocked in 4,778 miles so far
  • The team has grown to 74 members
  • We are in 3rd place in our “Social Group” of 50 to 100 members – a good one to beat would be the guys above us who are LFGSS who have a margin of 780 miles on us.
  • 5 people have already reached the “Elite” status – well done to Fabien, Edc, Teresa, Hugomac and Clairo. I hope to join you guys soon!
  • I’m currently 17th – poor effort by Mr London Cyclist!
  • So far there are 13 people who haven’t registered any miles – get on it guys! @suspectpackage I hope physio is over soon!
  • If you compare our position against the “Workplaces” 50 to 100 members category we would be 2nd out of 14 teams!
  • We burnt 166,197 calories in the first week! Which is 461 blueberry muffins or 1,196 cans of coke

Hopefully everyone is being honest with their miles and as accurate as possible. I’ve been using Google Maps to see what kind of distances I’m covering because a lot of my routes vary.

Here’s to the second week of the Cycle Challenge – keep logging your miles at:

    “We are in 3rd place in our “Social Group” of 50 to 100 members” also in last place in category!

    Have joined and added 157 miles to team total

      Yep, we have a lot of catching up to do! Thanks for adding all your miles so far!

    Although we are beating the only team in the social category with more than 100 members! We jsut need to get some more members and we’ll win!

    I’ve joined up to add my 155 miles thus far

    it seems your appeal has worked for a few more miles- the team’s up to 5594 and just 60miles behind the LFGFS lot

    I was just thinking that it was a shame I had forgotten to join up this year as I came into work today in my “london workplace cycle challenge 2007″ t-shirt (they must have had a bigger budget back to be giving out free t-shirts!)

      Yep, no word of t-shirts this year! Thanks for adding your miles. Glad we are catching up to the fixed gear guys!

      Thanks hugomac! Keep it up!

    I have been logging my miles with my Garmin GPS so far 132 miles but I do longish rides on Sundays with CTC so should jump up quickly.

    Hello – I’ve just joined up too – I’m training for London-Paris ride at the end of July so should hopefully be getting in a fair few miles over the next month or so!
